Post:

When musicians "warm up," the speed of sound in their instruments
increases. But the pitch will also increase because fn = nv/4L. So does
this mean that the frequency of the standing wave (note) produced in the
pipe is higher, but it still reaches our ear at the normal 343 m/s --
(i.e., frequency does NOT depend on speed)?
